The figure photographed underwater. This is something that has intrigued me for quite some time. When done right, there can be an otherworldly quality to the images. It reminds me of a dream-like state. Although the effect is different, it somewhat reminds me of what one can achieve with infrared photography. It’s almost surreal. Having seen some of the beautiful underwater work of photographers such as Howard Schatz and others, I have been inspired to explore this direction myself.
The following images are from my first attempt at what hopefully will be a new direction for future projects. Models are Lea Dodson and Unbearable Lightness.
